Back to Reality

When you're in the garden business, taking three weeks of vacation in the summer is not necessarily an easy thing to do.  Or is it?  The plants have filled in nicely, the weeds have slowed down in spite of all the rain, and I justify it because, um, well, I just do.

 While I was partying down on the beach, the garden was growing quite well on it's own.  As if by magic, upon my return, the steamy atmosphere lifted, the climate turned almost autumnal to make my work in the garden enjoyable.  Next week I'll be back to cursing out the burdock and oxalis.  This week, I am astonished by the beauty of the garden.  It's good to get away.
